IT’S A BUSY OFF SEASON …

Bec & MiljaCongratulations to Milja Spasojevic and Bec Rounds who were selected in the Queensland U/14s Indoor Netball Team, to compete at the National Championships.  Good luck girls as you head off to Perth this weekend!  GO QUEENSLAND!

WDNA Rep Trials – Good luck to those girls who are trialling for Rep teams this weekend.  Here are some tips to help do your best:

  • From Nat Medhurst – “Keep it simple, smile and enjoy it!” Full interview attached Nat-Medhurst-
  • Work hard during warm-up, game time and cool down – Show you enjoy the game which is what Rangers girls do best!
  • Make sure you attack and defend no matter your position – be prepared to do both at all times.
  • Don’t react negatively to errors made – just work hard to make up for it and help the team get the ball back into your possession.
  • Understand what the positions you are trialling for is responsible for on court, and do your best to show this to the selectors

New Netta Rules – Just to clarify our post with regards to 7 year olds playing in 2015.  If a players turns 7 anytime in 2015 they participate in Net Set Go, if a players turns 8 anytime in 2015 they can play in the Netta Competition.

*  7 Years not to play NETTA Competition in 2015:  With respect to the NETTA program, we have been advised by NQ that the only program we can offer 5 – 7 year olds in 2015 is Net Set Go. Players turning 7 in 2015 will NOT be able to play in the Netta Competition. WDNA will look at splitting the Net Set Go program to offer more advanced skills for the 7 year olds and will provide more details on this as they come to hand. In the meantime, clubs should not accept registrations from girls turning 7 in 2015.
